May all that is good rise up to greet you;

May all that is evil fall from your path.


God to guard you,
God to guide you,
God to keep you,
God to hide you
In his bosom,

Son to watch you,
Son to teach you,
Son to help you,
Son to heal you
With his life,
His blood outpoured.

Spirit with you,
Spirit in you,
Spirit through you,
Spirit show you –
You are in God’s love,
Evermore. Amen

God to enfold me,
God to surround me,
God in my speaking,
God in my thinking.

God in my sleeping,
God in my waking,
God in my watching,
God in my hoping.

 God in my life,
God in my lips,
God in my hands,
God in my heart.

God in my sufficing,
God in my slumber
God in my ever living soul,
God in my eternity.
